Meal Planning Monday (19th November 2012)

Morning meal-planners. How are you diddling? I'm crook and still on a diet so this is not going to be very exciting, no wonder I've been ousted from the Foodies 100.

I have to say though, my dieting days will be over in about two weeks and I'm looking forward to a massive cookathon. I won't have reached goal but there's no way on this earth I am dieting through December! Christmas is my favourite time of the year! Nope, diet goes on hold and I'll assess the damage in January.  I think whilst I am feeling a bit rough I shall batten down the hatches in the evenings this week, sit by the fire and do some serious Christmas food planning.

This week we are mainly eating whatever Waitrose has on offer today. Well, Mr M has leftover pasta bake from yesterday for his tea tonight and as I am having lunch with friends I shall have a gourmet feast of soup for my evening meal. The rest of the week for me will be things like stuffed peppers, roasted veg and I really fancy some fish so maybe a fishcake or two. I'm having egg and chips on Friday night though, that's going to be my treat dinner this week. For the rest of the family there will be spaghetti bolognese, pizza (man do I miss pizza when I am on a diet) and chicken burgers with the works.

What have you got planned? Are you ramping up to Christmas now and getting stuff planned and prepared?

The Linky for this week is below so do join in and add your #mealplanningmonday blog posts - and let me know in the comments if you've posted any Christmas recipes recently, I need inspiration.

Look forward to reading your posts, have a good week!

  5. Howdy, thanks as ever for hosting! Lovely hubby is in charge of Christmas food. As much as I would love a big turkey dinner we just can't bring ourselves to have it in the height of summer! It'll be steak on the barbie for us!

  6. I'm also not feeling great this week and I haven't got a lot of time to cook at the moment. In fact I am not sure quite when or how I'm going to eat tonight! I'm busy from 5.15 until 8.30; prime mealtime real estate being taken up right there.


I always like to hear your thoughts, so please do leave a comment!
